Speak to Understand: Building Bridges and Creating Community

In social settings as well as at work and school, we often struggle when relating to others that are not like us.  Often, there is fear and unease which we are hesitant to admit. Rather than show compassion and transparency, we often do and say things that are hurtful, dismissive, and even disrespectful to each other.  Joining me to talk about this are Randi Bryant, author and blogger along with Tonda Bean, educational consultant.  Let me know what you think!  (Air Date:  June 8, 2018)
